Einstein's Relativity Theory on the Dock
Oražnova 10, Ljubljana, Slovenia
This article deals with the as‐yet‐questionable Einstein principle of the constancy of light velocity for all observers, for those at rest as well as for those who are in a state of relative motion at high velocity, comparable to the velocity of light. Although the official physical science still rigorously clings to this principle and to the transformation of time and distance resulting from it, there exist some facts that incontestably confirm the reverse and give people who oppose it a vast opportunity to criticize it. But what is most interesting is that physicists do not want to confront themselves with any real proof that disproves the aforementioned principle. In the present paper the author tackles the most outstanding point of Einstein's relativity theory and in so doing comes to the surprising realization that everything connected to Einstein's relativity concept is of great value only to fervent defenders of Einstein, i.e., people who are firmly convinced that he is right, but who are strictly avoiding going to the heart of the matter and listening to the critics, who on the basis of fundamental analyses, made in connection with this theory, show them the real facts about their questionable doings. In short, the author comes to the final conclusion that time t and distance x = vt, especially, cannot be relative, but must be absolute, quantities.
